Did Bryan Adams ever date Princess Diana? Summer of 69 crooner finally reveals the truth to Andy Cohen
Princess Diana was rumored to have had many affairs, and there were speculations that she had one with Canadian musician Bryan Adams as well. We will never know what Diana had to say about it, but the 'Reckless' singer finally put those speculations to rest by stating that "they were just friends."
Appearing on the 'Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen', Adams finally broke his silence on the alleged dating rumours after the host coerced him into answering three questions during the 'Plead the Fifth' round. And not just this, Adams even cleared his stance on the allegations of getting sneaked into the Kensington Palace by saying, "She didn't sneak me in. I would just roll up."
Earlier this year, Diana's former butler Paul Burrell had alleged that Adams was among Diana's "nine gentlemen friends."
During his appearance on the show 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! Australia,' Paul had confided into fellow showmate Lisa Oldfield that in the 90s he used to sneak the singer into Kensington Palace in his car to see Diana.
In 2003, Adams' former girlfriend and ex-bond girl Cecilie Thomsen opened up about the former's relationship with the late princess and how it led to their break up. In an exclusive interview to Daily Mail, Thomsen said that she knew Adams was dating Diana and the two were romantically involved throughout 1996, a year after her divorce with Princes Charles. Their secret trysts susbequently led to Thomsen breaking up with Adams.
Much to the surprise of Andy and the audience, Adams didn't 'Plead the Fifith' to any of the questions, even the ones related to the late princess. Here's how the episode unfolded:
"There are many rumors that you and Princess Diana were once romantically involved," Cohen asked. "Her butler said that he used to sneak you into Kensington Palace. How would you characterize your relationship with Princess Diana?"
Adams: "Great friends. And she didn't sneak me in, I would just roll up."
Cohen: "Friends with benefits?"
Adams: "Um, she was just ... we were good friends."
In case you don't remember, the rumors of an affair skyrocketed after Bryan released a song dedicated to the princess titled "Diana," almost 30 years ago. Heard it?
